As for emissions, From the Corn Plus' existing air permit, issued in 2002, we excerpted this operating unit limit description: "Corn Plus is considered a non-major source by virtue of federally enforceable limits in its air emission permit Production: [is] less than or equal to 46,315,789 gallons/year using 12-month Rolling Sum of denatured ethanol". From the permit and various other sources it is apparent that Corn Plus is designed to capture C02 as a co-product, and distribute it under the "Dixie Carbonics" brand.
Operating limitations from the permit are:
Total Particulate Matter: less than or equal to 18.0 lbs/hour for SV010 and SV012 combined
Opacity: less than or equal to 20 percent opacity , except for one six-minute period per hour of not more than 60 percent opacity (limit applies to each stack separately)
Volatile Organic Compounds: less than or equal to 10.09 lbs/hour for SV010 and SV012 combined.
Whem mulitple drivers "converge" like this story indicates is happening, it's hard to decide how to profile the meaning. We thought hard about what the title and graphics for this post ought to be. Losing out was "Corn With The Wind," under a photo of a famous actor saying "frankly my Dear, I go give a damn."
